Saturday’s Trip – Photoheavy.

Yesterday, I woke up and there was snow dusting on the ground;
Sean needed to go to Bolton to get his season pass for skiing.

 So Liza &I joined him, taking along both my camera and my mom’s camera (that I brought up to VT.)

First things first. I bought a cheap remote for my canon. It doesn’t work as well as I would like but it makes pictures in the car more fun~

Texting Bean!

While Sean was getting the pass Liza &I had fun taking pictures of eachother:




The drive back was soo pretty:

&of course we stopped to see the camel. Which meant we had to park our car and walk;

yes, that’s right. Sean was crazy enough to go out in flip flops. Way to go, Sean!

Thanks Liza, for the teeth shot-

Then we headed back to the car;

&took some more pics in the parking lot

We headed back home while the sun was setting in the city~

I deserved it.

This is what I look like after being spun around over and over upside down.
He’s lucky I didn’t throw up on him.

When I can, I will

Yesterday I got a call from Liza, while she was at work; 3 words, “There’s a cat…”

Somehow, cats always end up in my life. There’s a cat is a phrase I’ve grown used to. 

“Yeah, of course”

The last cat I took in was a little tortoiseshell back when I lived in a dorm.

Ortie in my dorm, Nov 2008

“She’s a calico; she’s living in a laundry room. She’s over in Plattsburgh -in one of the apartment buildings. Sometimes she’s in the hallway, or outside. Where ever she is, she’s stuck. The doors are always closed. She’s declawed; she can’t defend herself or scratch up our furniture. I think we should take her.”

3pm today Liza walks through our front door with a cat carrier.

“Mayonnaise!” Liza LOVES mayo. “Franki, Petra, Penelope!” Each time we went back to Mayo. “Mayonaise. One ‘n’ like the song.” Mae.

———–
I asked Liza what the song, Mayonaise, means to her:
“that’s such a filled question. It means I need to learn how to take my time and not feel rushed and to be content with what I’m doing NOW rather than what I feel like I SHOULD be doing.”

Living in the present~
Which is kinda funny because we don’t know what’s going to happen in a year when our lease is over. Maybe we’ll decide to live together again, maybe we’ll go our own ways. We don’t know what’s going to happen to Mayo. But right now we can give her a home.

Here Mae is. Less than 12 hours and she already found a home in our hearts.


Sean &I went to the ceramic studio &he made her a food and water dish. So sweet – thanks Sean!

This is Bailey. She hangs out at the open studio.

&some extra pictures of Liza making a yoga sign; she wants to start teaching in our apartment. Another expense means another reason to find creative ways to make $$.

Finally

We were just hanging out in candlelight which is something we do almost every night, but this time I was smart enough to take my camera out and start shooting Liza. She looked so pretty (okay, okay, she always does, but there was something that was special this time.)


Anyway, I haven’t gone through all of them yet, but I like them. I like the soft light of the candles and how they’re almost out of focus. I like how they’re natural and fun. I like how beautiful Liza is, and how cute Sean can be when he wants to. I will definitely be taking my camera out more often; I love how natural pictures look (posed are sooo cheesy!) Thanks Liza & Sean for letting me shoot you! &Thanks for being my best friends up here.

Montreal, Canada

A few weekends ago Sean and I drove up to Montreal, Canada for the day;

We parked our car as soon as we got there and used the awesome bike rentals the rest of the day. $9 for two 24 hr bike rentals. Park them anywhere you see a station -which are every couple of blocks. It was wonderful.

 We rode to Mount Royal and decided to go for a hike and enjoy the scenery.

 


 

I love the design of this tree

a picture of me; too bad none of my friends can figure out how to control the focus on my camera.

When we finally did make it off Mount Royal we found bikes and rode around for the rest of the night. &My camera didn’t really make it out of my bag after that. But! I plan on going back soon (now that I live in Vermont it’s so close – almost silly not to!)
